Klay Thompson scored 21 points against the Pelicans on Saturday with one rebound, three assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers.
He missed two clutch free throws late, which statistically only has a 1.4 percent chance of happening based on his season free throw percentage of 87.9. The Warriors only made 61.8 percent from the line today, which is well below their season average of 76.8 percent. Thompson didn't have a great game, but his teammates picked him up. It'll be the other way around at some point in this postseason. Apr 18 - 7:08 PM

Klay Thompson needed just 16 minutes to score 25 points against the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, five 3-pointers and two turnovers.

He made 8-of-12 from the field and all four attempts from the line. It's so awesome to see that Klay usually matches his high usage rate with high efficiency. In fact, in his last 17 games with a usage rate greater than 30, he posted an effective field goal percentage of at least 50.0 16 times. It's kind of crazy how much Stephen Curry is overshadowing Klay.

Klay Thompson decided that one insane shooting game wasn't enough this season, hitting 15-of-20 shots (including eight treys) for 42 points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Warriors' 111-107 win over the Grizzlies on Monday.

The game was nowhere near as close as the score suggested so his teammates had some slow nights. Harrison Barnes logged 23 minutes with just two points, two boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks, and Andrew Bogut went for six and seven with three assists and one block. Steph Curry scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting with three treys, four boards, eight assists and a steal, and Draymond Green scored five points with nine rebounds, four assists and one steal. Steve Kerr said that he doesn't want to mess with their rhythm, but they'll all possibly see low minutes on Wednesday against the Nuggets. And the studs will all be worth using if they're starting that game.

Klay Thompson scored 26 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers against the Blazers on Thursday.

It's the 70th time Thompson and Stephen Curry have both scored at least 20 points in their careers. Thompson really needed a bounce-back game following a two-game cold spell, which had a combined 13 points on 5-of-21 from the field. He's one of the most durable players in the league, but there's a very good chance he'll be rested down the stretch. The Warriors are at home in all three of their final games.
Apr 10 - 1:25 AM

The Warriors lost to the Pelicans on Tuesday as Klay Thompson had another quiet game, posting seven points on 2-of-10 shooting with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, one steal and one block.

Klay has been off the mark lately, shooting a combined 35.6 percent over Golden State's past five games. His owners should shrug it off, as he could erupt for 25+ points at a moment's notice, and the only legitimate threat to his value is the potential for a DNP-CD. We'll let you know if he's in danger of sitting out Thursday's home game vs. Portland.
Apr 7 - 11:00 PM

The Warriors trailed the Spurs by 19 points at halftime on Sunday, and Klay Thompson finished the road loss with only six points on 3-of-11 shooting in 24 minutes.

It's a discouraging performance for the top-seeded Warriors but shouldn't have any lasting implications. Thompson's only risk is the threat of a DNP-CD, which looms large with only five games remaining on the schedule -- the Warriors play on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Monday next week, and fantasy owners will need to stay glued to Rotoworld's injury report for updates.
Apr 5 - 9:32 PM

Klay Thompson scored 21 points with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and five 3-pointers against the Mavs on Saturday.

Everyone has been talking about Stephen Curry and that's certainly warranted, but one could argue the Warriors wouldn't be close to where they are now without Klay. He's made a massive leap in scoring off the dribble while he is shutting down a lot of wings. He'll be a top-20 pick in drafts next season with some room to grow.
Apr 5 - 1:31 AM

Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said that Klay Thompson (ankle) will no longer be with a hard minutes limit, but he would still like to keep at around 25-30 minutes.

Basically, if the Warriors can get another blowout tonight expect to see Klay on the bench early. That being said, even if Klay is held to the lower-end of the minutes spectrum, that's still plenty of time for him to produce quality statistics for his fantasy teams, and remains a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Get him active.
Mar 27 - 6:49 PM

Klay Thompson (ankle) was on a 25-minute limit during his return on Tuesday, but he still scored 16 points (6-of-13 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with two boards, two assists, one steal and one block.

Thompson wasn't even expected to play tonight until his status rapidly improved during the afternoon, so this is all gravy for owners relying on him in fantasy playoffs. He added one 3-pointer without any turnovers in 24 minutes and should see his playing time slowly increase during Golden State's games on Friday (at Memphis), Saturday (at Milwaukee) and Tuesday (at the Clippers).
Mar 25 - 1:21 AM

Klay Thompson (ankle) will likely play around 25 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Blazers.

Thompson said that he felt good after playing 18 minutes vs. the Wizards on Monday, and his owners can feel free to plug him in to active lineups despite the light workload. There is always a chance that the Warriors decide to rest him for a game or two down the stretch, so his owners should keep a close eye on the injury report.
Mar 24 - 9:09 PM

Klay Thompson (ankle) said he felt good after Monday's game against the Wizards.

While Thompson played just 18 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Wizards, his comments after the game should make fantasy owners feel better. "It felt good," Thompson said of his ankle. "I'm excited to be back, and just it's good to feel no pain and just be healthy." While Steve Kerr may elect to rest Thompson at times down the stretch, he's still a must-start option for his ability to rack up three-pointers in bunches.

Klay Thompson (ankle) returned to action in the Warriors' 107-76 blowout win over the Wizards on Monday, playing just 18 minutes with eight points on 3-of-9 shooting (no threes), one board, three assists and one steal.

Thompson might have hurt a few owners tonight but the good news is that he returned to action early and didn't need to exert himself tonight. In fact, that's the biggest factor in his dud, and the rest of the box score wasn't exactly kind to folks either. Stephen Curry survived with 24 points, five treys, five boards, six assists and two steals, but everybody else was limited by the bench being emptied. Steve Kerr said he "didn't think" he'd rest anybody on Tuesday's road back-to-back against Portland, leaving the door open to do exactly that.
Mar 24 - 1:00 AM

Klay Thompson (ankle) will play against the Wizards on Monday.

He is going to have around a 25-minute limit tonight in his first game back. Thompson has been jogging since Wednesday and should be close to 100 percent while he's out there. Start him. Meanwhile, Justin Holiday and Leandro Barbosa can be dropped in most leagues unless you want to use them on Tuesday and have a matchup acquisition limit per week.
Mar 23 - 9:39 PM

Klay Thompson (ankle) will likely have a 25-minute limit against the Wizards on Monday.

He will start and likely play like four six-minute stretches or so in his first game back. Justin Holiday will move to the bench while Leandro Barbosa will lose touches as well. Thompson should be starting in all leagues.
Mar 23 - 8:47 PM

Klay Thompson (ankle) has been upgraded to probable to play against the Wizards on Monday.

He was doubtful about 90 minutes ago and now it sounds like he'll have a chance to play. Thompson has been able to jog since Wednesday and could be close to 100 percent even though he was expected to be out until Tuesday. Looking ahead, the Warriors have a road-road back-to-back set coming up on Friday and Saturday, so Klay and company could rest one of those games, too. With Thompson close to a return, Justin Holiday and Leandro Barbosa are less appealing.
